Today I was in Lille, France which no one has heard of and yet, it’s a giant city. Its center reminded me a lot of Ashland where it has great little shops, neat stone ...

He took us to the areas the soldiers advanced from and the scene as they would have seen it. Absolutely incredible.
When the Germans bombed Ieper, not a building was left standing so all the buildings we saw were less than 100 years old. Most had been rebuilt to replicate ...
